My grandfather, Dr. Malik Ghulam Murtaza (Shaheed) was a PhD in Islamic Philosophy and Metaphysics.
He obtained his Masters degree in Philosophy from Government College in Lahore as well as his Masters in Arabic from The Punjab University. After passing his CSS exams, he was appointed as a grade 20 CSP government official in Pakistan, where he served that position for fourteen years.
Throughout this period, he did justice to his rank by actively contributing to the education and religion sector, having initiated non-profit educational trusts, schools and degree colleges. Upon completion of this period, he resigned in order to serve Islam fully. He earned several diplomas in Islamic Fiqh and was appointed as the Head of Shariat Department in Jamiah Islamia (University) in Madinah Munawwarah.
Dr. Malik Ghulam Murtaza lived up to his reputation of hard work and religious devotion to seek and spread knowledge, which earned him the honor of membership of the Saudi Shoora Council.
Having authored many books in both Urdu and English languages, he has written a Tafsir of the Quran in Urdu titled "Anwaar-e-Quran" as well as books in English, namely, 'Socioeconomic System in Islam' and 'Islam and the Welfare State', among others.
He regularly delivered talks on Islam in the light of comparative religion and social issues on various platforms. He has appeared as a guest speaker on several television channels as well as conducted lectures during live congregations and regularly delivered Friday
sermons in mosques globally.
He has delivered lectures in English, Arabic and Urdu in the U.S. Canada, United Kingdom, Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates, Bangladesh, Iran, Germany and Pakistan, respectively.
His talks on various Islamic topics turned him into a respected personality, especially among the moderate Sunnis & Shia.
